Life Insurance answers are regularly sought from our financial planners, to the following questions:
Most of us have life insurance in our superannuation funds, don’t we? (Isn’t that enough?)
I can get whatever cover I want from the services offered on TV – can’t I?
I’m young fit and healthy – why do I need to take out life insurance?
By way of response we suggest that it is important to –
- Understand what financial position your dependants will be in if you become seriously incapacitated, diagnosed with a critical illness or die – and for the purposes of this consideration, let’s assume the event occurs at a time not of your choosing (perhaps tomorrow?!)
- Ensure that any shortfall in your providing for the financial needs of your dependants (and for you in the case of incapacity) are appropriately provided for – and in doing so, you should understand:
- Insure for perceived needs using the appropriate type of policy, with the most suitable provider, in the correct amount of cover, owned in the most appropriate way – and with beneficiaries nominated to suit your planning requirements.
